ABOUT THE FILM:
Starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson
"Just Mercy" tells the true story of young attorney, Bryan Stevenson and his quest for justice.
After graduating from Harvard, Bryan Stevenson heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley. One of his first and most incendiary cases is that of Walter McMillian, who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie.
In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds and the system stacked against them.
